The Triumph of a Heart

The Triumph of a Heart

The nerves are sending shimmering signals
All through my fingers
The veins support
Blood that gushes impulsively towards
Is the triumph of a heart that gives all
That gives all
The triumph of a heart that gives all
That gives all

~ “Triumph of a Heart” by Bjork

The Triumph of a Heart

The song fits. The connection is perfect. Eshi Otawara is releasing her first ensemble in quite a while, just in time for Valentine’s Day, and it is a triumph of the heart. With the bold red and black feathering, its intricate waist and bustle, its well… triumphant head piece, Eshi gives us that pulsing passionate art that we have missed so much in the past year. Look closely and you see Eshi packs this piece with passion, from the animated red pulses running up the swirls to the cosmic anemones in the headpiece to the side veils streaked with red edges.

The song from Bjork, if you listen to it, is from her 2004 album, Medulla, and features a montage of human vocal sounds with a “mew” on beat. Those who know Eshi personally know that her cat (named “Cat”) is a beautiful black and white calico, and sometimes I think his lush beautiful coat and self-reliant character are inspiration for her pieces.

I accompany it with aida Ewing’s Valentine’s Day offering, a set of skins that will be available at The Dressing Room. With bold red lips and makeup and aida’s au courant, minimalistic features, it’s a perfect match for this incredible piece of wearable sculpture.

The Triumph of a Heart

Smooth soft red velvety lungs
Are pushing a network of oxygen joyfully
Through a nose, through a mouth
But all enjoys, which brings us to
The triumph of a heart that gives all
That gives all
